For some reason I saved this way back in 1997 when I was in the 8th grade and Surge had only been out a few months:

Everybody who is anybody remembers Orbitz from Clearly Canadian from 1996. Well, I was bored looking for discontinued food products on Google, when I ran across this message board on cheapassgamer. From this post:

Orbitz was a very innovative and fun beverage for our consumers, however, we made the decision to discontinue the beverage a couple of years ago to focus our attention on creating more new beverages for our consumers to enjoy.

There has been some preliminary discussion on bringing Orbitz back in 2007 or 2008, but at this time we have no definite plans.

We would like to keep your email on file to contact you in the event that we do re-launch Orbitz.

If there is anything else we can provide to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Blog entry from X-E from last week about Boku.

I remember that stuff being really expensive growing up, and they only came in three packs. And only the cooler kids drank them at lunch.

You heard me. I bought this at Big Lots during my trip with Gary….I drank half the bottle (I thought it was rank, I hope the new CC tastes a lot better) and then it sat on my shelf for me to take a picture to put up here….for months. I finally threw it away today.

I went ahead and threw this under “discontinued” since CC has been reforumulated in the past year.

7up Plus Tropical

What did I do Sunday? Drank a year old bottle of 7up Plus Tropical.

7Up Plus Tropical

Here is the (probably) year old 7up Plus Tropical soda I had Sunday. This stuff was a total flop for 7up. Gary and I saw this stuff rotting in the Eckerd coolers back in February, so this has to be the same bottle. I decided to do it on a whim since I never tried Tropical when it came out last summer. I tried cherry though and that was (to be blunt) piss.

This stuff was so sweet and it had that milky aftertaste that the other two flavors have. I only drank about 10 sips of this stuff before throwing it away.

Geez, why did we make such a BIG DEAL out of Vanilla Coke?! I think the majority of people got tired of it after 2 months.

This was one of the very last Frutopia Flavors. I think Coke killed the line in the US later on that year, and put the few suriving flavors in the Minute Maid line. This stuff was awful. Very syrupy.

Funny, its my favorite label of all time (I love white red and black together) but its my least favorite drink of all time.

I found this old lunchbox in my car…its probably been in my car for over a year. When I opened it, I saw this can of KMX (Coke’s energy drink that is long discontinued) that I bought (already expired!) at Farm Fresh during the summer of 2005. SUMMER.OF.2005. Sweet christ.. I have the nastiest car ever.
